Servo tray mounting

A 66 gram piece of lead moulded in a modeler putty box from the children with aluminim foil where glued in the nose based on the mould by pushing the nose of plane with foil into the modeler putty. The servo tray was glued in with RG moulding epoxy. First after inserting the fuselage wiring harness, a thin layer of epoxy were applied with a brush inside the fuselage where at the edges of were the tray will meet the fuselage.

Then applied epoxy mixed with 0,2mm glassfiber cut where the tray has connection with the ballast tube.

And then brushed the edges of tray from top with epoxy. Another layer of glassfiber mixed epoxy will be applied to make sure all edges are glued to the fuselage. Given the lenght of the servotray, a grill spear/flower stick where used to apply epoxy at narrow sections inside the fuselage and in the front of the nose.

Then finally when epoxy beginning the hardening process, the epoxy where used to glue / secure the MPX connectors into the fuselage.

The weight of fuselage with V-tails, receiver, battery and uncut too long carbon pushrods is now 660grams, so estimated weight by now is 2110 grams for the whole assembly.
